Small Groups

Intentional communities seeking deeper relationship with God and each other.







Small Groups


Small groups are a wonderful way to build relationships and to delve deeper into faith. Right now we have four functioning small groups, but are always open to new ones starting, so talk to Pastor Julie if you have a vision for a particular group! The current groups are the Preschool Parent Group, Prayer Ministry Team, Bible Study, Book Study, Prayer Shawl Ministry, and Women of Atonement.

Preschool Parent Group

First Friday mornings of each month in the Parlor, 9:15-10:30 a.m., when preschool is in session
This lively group, primarily made up of preschool moms, meets during the day on the first Fridays of each month, when preschool is in session – sometimes for conversation or discussion, sometimes for preschool prep work, sometimes for service projects. The group sees itself as functionally a support group, fellowship, a faith group, and sort of like the preschool’s PTA. We are flexible and committed to welcoming and non-judgment.

Prayer Ministry Team

The first Tuesday of every month at 3:00 p.m. in F. 122 or Highlands (see weekly bulletin announcement for location)

This is a mixed group of Atonement members who meet for intentional prayer using a prayer list and issues important to the congregation at the time, usually meeting in the parlor right off of Atonement's main lobby.  You are welcome here anytime!  

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The first Monday of every month at 3:00 p.m. in the Parlor

This is a lovely group of Atonement members who meet for the goal of preparing prayer shawls for our yearly graduates, loss of a loved one, and those in in need during an illness.

Women of Atonement

The final pot luck spring luncheon of the year will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 12 p.m. in the Privacy Room 

Women of Atonement will gather for a final pot luck spring luncheon at Noon in the privacy room on Saturday, May 19, 2018.  RSVP on church clipboard in the narthex.

The 1:00 p.m. Program speaker this year is our very own women of atonement president, Gail Dawson-White's study of military occupation during World War II in Paris France 1940-44.  The challenges of collaboration, resistance and belief were all put to a four-year test during the Nazi reign in France. Gail was a Junior Year Abroad student and French major during the 1960's. She has also presented this program at the Wyomissing Library and Oheb Shalom Temple.

If you are not able to join us for lunch, you are still welcome to come for the 1 o'clock progam.
